Overview

Discover the story of psychoanalysis, see Freud's study, extraordinary collection and iconic couch. This beautiful house in leafy Hampstead was the home of Sigmund Freud and his family when they fled from Nazi rule in Austria in 1938. It remained the family home until Freud's daughter Anna, a pioneer of child psychoanalysis, died in 1982. Then at her wish it became a Museum. The centrepiece is Freud’s study, with his now iconic psychoanalytic couch and collection of antiquities, preserved as they were in his lifetime. The Museum offers a lively programme of events, courses and conferences, as well as a research resource, education service and venue hire for private functions.

Had always wanted to visit this museum and it did not disappoint. The staff are great and you get plenty of time. An added unexpected advantage is the insight into Anna Freud (his daughter)

My daughter and I visited because she just got a degree psychology. It was interesting but not much to see. We only spent about 45 minutes there. It is out of the way in the London area. I can now say I visited it.

Impressive to see THE COUCH as well as Freud's art collection. An intimate glimpse into the ice of a genius that truly changed the way we think about unconscious processes. Highly recommended and in a great, more village like, part of London. Worth the detour.
